Coconut OIl - How do you use it?

This is the end of my coconut product spree! Thank you to Epicurex for all the free samples. I don't often have free offers. It was a treat.

I have been curious to try many new products, but living here, in the middle of nowhere, it isn't always easy. Now I know how simple it is to order these from Amazon. I had to pay the shipping on this but it was only $5.00

How do you all use coconut oil? I have never tried it. Oil is a bit of a misnomer. After all, we don't call butter 'milk oil'. I have seen the term coconut butter and that is more descriptive of the product. This is a very hard fat even at room temperature.

I suppose before all the changes in attitudes and research on solid fats 'oil' presented better. But it is definitely not an oil.

I tasted this coconut butter and it's yummy. It has a pure coconut flavour. I like my coconut in curries and in desserts. Coconut oil has a high smokepoint and therefore, a good choice for pan sautéing or frying. At 130 calories per tablespoon it is slightly higher in calories than butter at 100 calories per tablespoon. Researching the calories I found that different brands of coconut oil and also, butter, varied slightly in caloric content. So be sure to read the Nutrition Facts label on the product.
